Storyline

They are fifteen young dancers of various origins and horizons. They are touring Crowd, Gisèle Vienne's dance piece on the 90's rave scene. Following them from theatre to theatre, If It Were Love documents their work as well as their strange, intimate relationships. For the line becomes blurry. The stage seems to contaminate real life - unless the opposite is happening. From a dance documentary, the film thus grows into a troubling journey into our nights, our parties, our loves.

Dance life
23 March 2020 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This could be a great double bill feature (documentary) to what Gasper Noe released. A more "sane" version to Noes insane one when it comes to what happens behind the scenes. So while Climax is quite crazy to put it mildly, this shows dancers and a piece they are preparing for.

This also has spark to it. Not just the theme of the piece they are dancing to, but just the fact that so many people are together and some of them are even "together" together. This is sensual, this is in your face. This is as close as you will get to watch what happens and what the protagonists really think (without having worked with or for them that is). Not everyones cup of tea, but more than decent
